100 percent ability is in your hands! Conformation Balancing is deceptively simple. With patient, conscientious placement of your hands on specific areas of the horse’s body, you can bring about profound change in his physical and mental well-being. The secret? The internet-like web of fascia beneath the skin. Fascia is the connective tissue that “holds everything together”—it wraps around, attaches, and stabilizes muscles and internal organs, communicating with all parts while providing structure and organization. But here’s the thing: Fascia is also a reservoir for emotional trauma and tension. This means that when you help a horse find physical release in a “stuck” area of strain or stiffness, you invite psychological healing as well.

About the Author
Following a Bachelor’s degree in journalism, Margret Henkels was a reporter and sales associate in the newsprint industry, while her visual skills were honed in the art business in Santa Fe, New Mexico. A deep passion for horses, good health, and learning to find her own 100 percent fitness drew Henkels into equine bodywork. She is certified in Matrix Energetics, a Quantum Energy work developed by Dr. Richard Bartlett, and Equine Natural Movement (Heller Work for horses) with Joseph Freeman. Her method of Conformation Balancing was developed through years of work with horses experiencing elusive athletic limits. An avid rider, Henkels includes a rider’s perspective in her bodywork techniques. Her riding experiences have taken her to Ireland with the Willie Leahy Connemara and Coast tours, and at home she explores dressage and trail rides and has foxhunted. Henkels continually researches conformation in relation to her unique approach in order to offer new tools for looking at the horse’s appearance to find athletic imbalances.
